Tomorrow’s Leaders
The Future Belongs to Those with Influence

 Facilitated by US CEO, John Patterson, Influential U

In the dynamic and technically interconnected world of the 21st century, human influence is a critical determinant of success. At Influential U, we believe influence is not just a valuable skill—it's essential for shaping the future. Our 2024 workshops focus on "Practicing the Human Touch," a trend highlighted by futurist Bernard Marr in Forbes Magazine and the latest McKinsey report.

Influence and the Human Touch: As automation advances, the ability to foster successful human interactions becomes a vital differentiator, and with five generations working together for the first time in history, the need for effective communication and collaboration is greater than ever. Astute professionals and organizations will increasingly invest in training and upskilling in areas such as emotional intelligence, communication, negotiation, interpersonal problem-solving, high-level strategy, and emerging leadership.

We invite you to us to practice the skills that will set you apart. Explore real-world scenarios and practical strategies for nurturing and applying these skills in your professional journey. Gain insights into why organizations are investing in this critical differentiator. Develop these attributes and learn how to adapt to this transformative shift in the business landscape.

Influential U co-founder and CEO John Patterson delivers an immersive, practical experience that will elevate your professionalism and equip you to thrive in a world where the human touch remains irreplaceable. This workshop will help you cultivate essential people skills needed to excel in 2024 and beyond.
